Two vehicles in accident

On Monday, March 13, at 7:52 a.m., the Crawford County Sheriff’s Department was notified of a two-vehicle crash with injuries on Highway 27, just south of Kendall Lane in the village of Eastman.

Jordan Cipra 19, Eastman, and her passenger, Jamie Crusan, 18, Eastman, were traveling north on Highway 27 in a Ford Expedition. Cipra lost control of her vehicle while negotiating a curve and went off the east side shoulder.

While trying to regain control of the vehicle, Cipra started sliding on Highway 27, which caused the vehicle to cross the center line into the southbound lane.

Brita Prew, 31, Eastman, was traveling south on Highway 27 in a Chevrolet Traverse. The Prew vehicle was unable to avoid striking the Cipra vehicle in the rear passenger side, causing both vehicles to come to rest along the guardrails. The guardrails sustained minor damage from the crash.

Man, woman arrested in drug bust

On Monday, March 6, the Crawford County Sheriff’s Office executed a narcotics related search warrant at 51153 County Highway B in the township of Utica. The search warrant was the result of a narcotics investigation which spanned nearly six months dating back to September 2016.

Through the course of the investigation, law enforcement discovered the renters of the residence Kayla Odegard, 28, and Samuel Clark, 33, were involved in the illegal sale and distribution of marijuana, prescription medication, and methamphetamine.

Items found and seized during the search warrant were prescription medication, marijuana, marijuana paraphernalia, methamphetamine paraphernalia, and items associated with the distribution of narcotics.

Clark and Odegard were home along with their four children, ages 3, 6, 9, and 11, at the time of the search warrant. Odegard and Clark were subsequently arrested in connection with this investigation.

City library fountain may cease, Bridgeport ends incorporation

It’s looking like the artesian well and fountain in front of the Prairie du Chien Memorial Library may not be saved in the facility’s planned 2017 renovation and expansion project. The Prairie du Chien Common Council learned Tuesday night that the well, which is a century old, is leaking water and poses a long-term liability issue to the future of the library.

“It’s leaking deep underground and they don’t know where it’s going,” Mayor Dave Hemmer said.

The project is now expected to include a plan to cap the well, according to a memo provided to the council by the former city administrator, Aaron Kramer, before he vacated his post last week.

“That’s a pity because it’s kind of iconic,” Alderman Ron Leys stated. “I hate to lose that fountain; people love it.”

Students win River Ridge $25,000 in technology

By Correne Martin

River Ridge seventh graders David Nies and Sam Reuter were recognized Monday afternoon, March 13, at a special school assembly for winning the district $25,000 in technology through Samsung. They were the Wisconsin state winners for the Solve for Tomorrow Contest, which focused on how Science, Technology, Art, Engineering and Math (STEAM) could be applied to help improve the local community. Being one of only 51 winners across the country, among 6-12 grade students, put them in the running for a share of $2 million in technology products.

“These students spent some time, not on the court, not on the field, but in the classroom, doing some research,” Middle/High School Principal Clay Koenig said during the assembly. “This is really unheard of for us to win a contest of this magnitude.”
